Some days are better than others, and that’s a fact, Jack (or Jill). Some days you catch all green lights rushing to work, complete a huge project ahead of time, and reap praises from your family for packing everyone’s lunch. Other days the car refuses to start, all your co-workers eat a grumpy bar for breakfast, and no one living under your roof lifts a finger to take out the trash or walk the dog. Nasty winter weather doesn’t help. Anyone out there love twenty straight days of dreary skies? Not me.
So here’s a ray of sunshine, a sprinkle of encouragement, a positive note on this most Southern-Fried Friday—you’re not alone. Ever. Never. Why? Because, “You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” History says David wrote Psalm 18 after a string of bad days, like running for his life. Yeah, whether thousands of years ago or now, some days are walls, some are humps, and others are down right grand. But every one of them is lighter and easier with God by our side.
What’s your antidote for dreary winter days?
